Holy cow this was the beginning of Summer tour for me and this show was just in the coolest place. Such a neat and pristine park. I was lucky enough to go to Hershey Park in 85 so this was the second time to see freaks interacting with straight park people. I remember the cops had like funny hats and also coming into the place the lawn was immaculate. I need to go look at some photos to see it again. This was the touch of gray summer and I remember being a little disappointed hearing how it sounded almost too perfect and clean, like the record. I remember the minglewood being good. The sound from the lawn was a bit weak, not sure if that is the dead's fault or just the way the place was set up. I like it LOUD.

Nothing earth shattering for me in the first set, but man was I happy to get a Scarlet>Fire and I remember the whole second set was just great flow and energy. I moved under what I remember to be fluffy white roof of this shed...and also check out the drums at 5 minutes. You know during drums>space sometimes you remember hearing stuff, I remember this motorcycle sound (from Hell in a Bucket) and it was awesome at the show, Healy was fucking with the
sound so it sounded like it was spinning around if that makes sense...

This was a special show due to the venue, nice flow...I think that they might have had to keep the sound low on the lawn for the park people now that I think about it...

A hometown show a year before i got into the Dead but I know many people who were at this show and this was one of my first tapes. I think this show can best be summarized by saying: you had to be there. Nice setlist but the performances aren't anything special. This is often rated as one of the best of the year which shows why I don't listen to this era often.
A few highlights in the second set: The short, fast Eyes has some good playing. Bobby saves the day with a strong post-space run. For me the Other One is the one true gem of this show; really spacey and unique. Nice Box encore.
Healy is a bit heavy-handed throughout the show but puts in a few good effects on Estimate and OO.

This was my second Dead concert. A huge improvement over my first (7/4/86). It sounded like the band was enjoying themselves and getting into it. I didn't care for Eyes at this tempo, but a nice version of it here, with a cool post song jam to lead into drums. I'm starting my review process by submitting them for all the shows I attended that are available on the archive. The criteria will be how does it compare to all the other shows I've seen? Not how does it compare to my favorite tapes (my personal favorite years for the Dead are 1970-1972). Anyway, Jerry's voice is a little rough on this concert, but there's a spark and energy to this show that makes up for it. Worth a listen, or a download.
